On December 21, 2019, our client was driving northbound on Fallen Timbers Lane in the left through lane approaching Russell Road in Lucas County, Ohio. At the same time, the defendant, who was traveling southbound in the left turn lane, failed to yield the right of way, colliding with our client’s vehicle.
Our client suffered severe injuries in this accident. However, at the time of the crash, the defendant did not have sufficient automobile insurance to cover his physical, emotional, and financial losses. Fortunately, our client was protected through his uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage with Farmers Insurance Company. The attorneys at Charles E. Boyk Law Offices are helping our client get compensation for his injuries and damages from the careless motorist and Farmers Insurance Company.
Seeking Compensation from the Negligence Driver and Farmers Insurance
Like all drivers, the negligent motorist had a duty of care to operate her vehicle in accordance with state and city laws. She ignored this responsibility by failing to yield the right of way when turning left.
As a result of her actions, our client suffered serious personal injuries, including injuries to his neck, left shoulder, back, and right ankle. These injuries have required medical care, resulting in economic losses. He has also suffered non-economic harm, such as suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress.
Our client’s injuries are believed to be permanent and will require future medical care. Accordingly, we are seeking compensation from the negligent driver for our client’s current and future damages.
The defendant’s liability policy limits were lower than our client’s uninsured/underinsured policy limits. As such, our team is seeking a declaratory judgment in favor of our client, stating that he is entitled to uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage through his Farmers Insurance policy.
